The Fatman on Batman himself, the guy who prays to the Dark Knight at the start of every hilarious Batman podcast, has defected to the enemy. Kevin Smith has revealed that he enjoys Joss Whedon’s Avengers more that the final movie in the Dark Knight Trilogy. He revealed this shocking revelation to The Playlist:
“I’ve now watched ‘Avengers’ about eight times, twice on a plane back-to-back. It just keeps giving. That’s 10,000 across the board! Whedon in the driver’s seat, 70-80 years of Marvel, and the charm fucking factor of Robert Downey Jr. It runs like a golden machine. I never imagined that I would love ‘Avengers’ more than ‘Dark Knight Rises.’ Not only would I have never imagined that ‘Dark Knight’ would underperform (based on other mitigating factors of course). But I would have never thought ‘Avengers’ would make more than ‘Dark Knight Rises.’ But I never would have thought I would have liked ‘Avengers’ more than ‘Dark Knight Rises’ but I really did like ‘Avengers’ more. And I’ve watched them an equal amount of times. ‘Avengers,’ I’m not going to say it’s the better movie, but it puts a smile on your face. It’s magical cinema.”
